Based on the recommendations made in Part I, we have broken down several so you can get a better understanding on how they look, the fragrance provided, and the way in which each will enhance your upcoming wedding.
Star Gazer Lily These oriental lilies are large and offer a very romantic fragrance. Each has 10 multi-blooms per stem and is gorgeous and elegant. The one thing to remember when choosing this type of lily is that when they open, the pollen iside, which is an orange or rust color will shed. Therefore, you do not want to touch this part of the flower or it will stain. Typical price is $25 per 10-stem bunch.
Waxflowers These flowers make nice fillers, providing a citrus fragrance. You will have the choice of white or pink, both with hints of yellow. The cost for the Waxflowers averages $12 a bunch.
Bells of Ireland Excellent for weddings, these flowers have a unique shape, sweet fragrance, and for a bunch of 10, average $8.
Heather comes primarily in pink although there is also a white option. These flowing flowers are a nice touch for any wedding at a low cost of just $8 per bunch, affordable.
Delphinium This flower is available in a number of varieties, often seen with blue flowers of varying shades. You can buy Delphinium in bunches of 7-10 stems for around $8.
Godetia This flower is beautiful, making it a great choice for weddings. However, because the Godetia is known for blooming for weeks and then stopping suddenly, they are not a sure thing. In other words, you could order these flowers only to find when delivered that they have decided to stop blooming.
Peony Although the peony is another flower hard to predict, they are beautiful and dainty.
Ranunculus Beautiful bunches that come in orange, pink, red, yellow, and white. This is the perfect flower for a springtime wedding and averages $10 per bunch.

Lisianthus These flowers have magnificent colors of pink, purple, and white, or a combination of pink and purple with a white hint. Because they are a little more exotic, the price is a little steeper, generally averaging around $18 per bunch.
Hydrangea Although you will typically pay around $25 for a bunch of 5 blooms, the incredible colors of blue, lavender, mauve, pink, and purple make this a favorite of many brides.

Yarrow For a bright, cheery flower, Yarrow is perfect. It offers a natural and wild look that can be purchased for $8 a bunch, each consisting of 10 stems.
Phlox is often overlooked for weddings, which is a real shame. With beautiful pink and white blooms, this makes a great addition to any bouquet and averages $12 per bunch, which includes about 10 stems.
